Saying NGHTMRE had a great 2015 would be just straight wrong; NGHTMRE came outta nowhere, slayed every frequency and dropped over 25 records last year. Out of the 2016 gate, NGHTMRE drops his first solo self-titled EP on Mad Decent on 3/25.
Leading up to release of his EP, NGHTMRE will drop a new track every two weeks. This week he kick things off with “Prelude” & “Burnout” The two tracks set the tone with NGHTMRE’s trademark juxtaposition between the emotional build and the intense drop.
